Global climate change predictions point to an increasingly drier climate in Zimbabwe. In response FACHIG promotes enhanced biodiversity management by farmers, in particular the integration of more crops and adoption of drought tolerant seed varieties as well as diverse and hardy indigenous livestock breeds into their farming systems.

FACHIG links smallholder farmers to institutional markets destined for instance to supply school meals- a combination that guarantees markets and income to farmers and nutritiuos meals for children. We also work with them to recover traditional crops that have great value for local food and nutrition security but that have been left aside because of the commodification of our diets.
